Project summary

Edit project overview to modify the project summary.


Notching of weir and /or attachment of brushes for eel migration. Tidal Creek of the wandle has a number of structures causing a barrier to fish passage and holding back water causing a decline in diversity. This will create an easy to do project and make the river more accessible.
